Which Is Best? Choosing between a TV wall mount and a TV stand is totally dependent on your personal requirements. TV stands are good for those people who may not have a wall that is strong enough to support the weight of their TV set, or of course for those who don’t like the look of wall mounted TVs. However, TV wall mounts are a great way to maximize space in smaller rooms and also make sure that your precious TV is out of the way of children and pets.
Disadvantages Of TV Wall Mounts. You can only mount your TV in certain places. Modern LCD and plasma TVs are still fairly heavy so you need to make sure the wall is strong enough to support your TV. Never fasten your mount to plasterboard because it is too weak and your TV will soon come crashing to the floor; instead you should only secure the mount to solid brickwork or wall studs.
